Apple Blossom Mug
Out of stock
The smell after the rain on a still crisp spring day with that lightly sweet floral addition of fruit blossoms unfurling is what this lovely Apple Blossom Mug evokes. Deep berry tones edge the blossoms and rim to compliment the soft white of the petals and creamy background. The perfect shape for those who love to cup their mug in one or both hands, also has a well balanced handle.
This piece is wheel thrown with porcelain clay, then refined through trimming/sanding, and the application of an underglaze transfer (from Elan Transfers). After firing, the piece is cleaned, hand painted with multiple layers for depth of color, coated with a clear glaze for shine, and then wax is used to cover and protect the design while the rest of the piece is glazed.
The photographs for this listing are an example, not the exact piece you will receive. Because each piece is handmade, there may be slight variations in size and shape, the placement of the pattern, depth, and color ranges of the glaze. Rather than considering these to be imperfections, I believe they are part of what makes each piece uniquely beautiful.
This piece is lead free and food safe. It can be microwaved and washed in the dishwasher. However, as with any special and delicate item, not exposing it to hot/cold extremes, and hand-washing is the kinder option.
